Despite the impression one may have received from the media, there are a certain number of estates in the Haut-Médoc appellation producing quite remarkable wine, although they may not currently be in the limelight. This is so for Chateau Camensac. After several decades of relatively mediocre performance, this château has clearly revived the tradition of quality that earned the château a place in the prestigious 1855 classification. This achievement is undoubtedly due to the huge effort made by the Forner family since 1964. The Forner family launched a major renovation programme soon after acquiring Camensac. They installed ultra-modern equipment and entirely renovated the winemaking facilities, in keeping with the estate's large scale. The remarkably restored chateau building symbolises this renaissance. The château (a simple, but beautiful, 18th century manor house) is flanked either side by cellars and outbuildings.

  • Chateau de Camensac 1994

    Snoothrank:

    Lovely with herb and earth on the nose, then bit of mineral, in a classic style and with attractive complexity. Fresh, juicy and very refreshing in the mouth, not an ager but perhaps over the shorter terms this offers sweet red berry fruit and well balanced if modest structure. 87pts Read More

  • Château Camensac Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This wine has a wonderful deep purple color at the center, edging out to bright ruby. The nose is just what you would expect from a well crafted Haut-Medoc, rich aromas of leather, mint, a touch of cedar and dried flowers. The taste is somewhat fruit forward, with muted flavors of cassis and berry that transitions to a bit of sour cherry and s... Read More

  • Just a quick posting on a tasting we did last week.  We've been celebrating our tenth anniversary, and I stockpiled 2001s.  Good thing it was a strong vintage in so many places.  Of course, the 2001 Gran Reservas from Rioja are, in some cases, just hitting the market and are terrific values. We celebrated with a bottle we bought in the first cou... Read More
